Make trick or treating a little more special with these Halloween treat bags that kids can customize themselves! A simple sewing craft, they can be used year after year.



Bags


Time: 45 minutes
Age: over 10's
Level: Hard

Materials
Cereal box to use as pattern
Felt (1 felt sheet of orange, enough for a cereal box of black)
Piece of plastic
Thread
Sewing machine

Method
Cut apart the cereal box - sides out and top off. Use this for your pattern.



Pattern


Lay out the cereal box pattern pieces on your black felt and cut an extra 1 to 1.5 cm for seam allowance. Cut two extra pieces about 7 cm wide X 30 cm long to use as handles.



Bags
To make it easier to find the bottom of the bag, cut darts at the cereal box folds. These can easily be trimmed off later.


You should have one long rectangle for the bag, 2 side pieces and 2 long pieces for the handle.



Bags


Cut a rectangle of the orange felt for the frame. Cut a plastic piece the same size for the frame cover. An interior rectangle will need to be cut out.



Bags
If you have recently purchased new sheets or blankets, the bags these come in works great for the plastic.


Sew up the sides of the long felt pieces for the handles. Attach these to the bag first.

Sew the top of the orange piece with zig zag stich. Use a straight stich to attach the orange frame to your plastic piece and sew all the way around the rectangle opening.

Finish the zig zag stich around the frame on the bag. The top part should be open to insert a picture.
Attach the sides using a straight stitch. Start by attaching both side pieces to the bottom and then sew up all four sides.



straps
Sewing with rough edges out is easy with the felt.


Add halloween decorations or ribbon to your bag.



finished bag
Insert ribbon by cutting a hole in the felt at about 7 cm intervals around the bag and threading the ribbon through.


Insert your own customized Halloween picture. We used Fingerprint Spider Web pictures.

Ready for trick or treating!
